Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

For the people concerned about Cousins ints, that's part of having an aggressive offense and that's what we saw last week. RG has had some down right terrible Ints this year as well. It's expected with two young guys. Who would you rather have? Drew Brees or Alex Smith? Brees has had a few seasons where he's thrown 20 and 18 ints. So what? Give me that guy over an Alex Smith anyday. We clearly had a real pass offense for the first time all year....w/out Hank and Reed. For only two starts under his belt, and a guy who hadn't started all year, that was pretty impressive stuff on Sun.

He looked like RG3 did against Minnesota. Not better, not worst.

It's not like Griff has sucked all year. He's had a few good games, but he's had several bad ones. It's obvious that if MS stays, Cousins isn't going anywhere and he's going to let this play out. That's the way it should be.

The offenses Manning and Brady are running today were not considered NFL offenses when they broke into the league.

Luck is certainly a historical anomaly in terms of what responsibilities he received right from the first game (maybe the only guy in the last 20 years to start Game 1 with the full playbook), but he also hasn't exactly taken the league by storm in terms of performance.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

If RG2 was actually campaigning for Art Briles and helped get him to come here, he would have done more good for the franchise than Shanahan did in 4 years.

I don't mind cousins staying, and if he plays well he should be given a chance to compete for next year's starting job.

I do think that Shanahan should go though. but that is a discussion in another thread.

The fact that he's a Shanahan microphone is exactly why you SHOULDNT take anything he says with a grain of salt. He's preaching what's really going on, Atleast from shanahans point of view.

So he is saying what Shanahan is telling him... I'm confused why people shouldn't question that.

That isn't truth, that is Shanahan telling someone what to say to the public. That is barely even a point of view.

It's a bad game when your QB has two INTs and a fumble lost. And let's not forget that we were playing a crappy Atlanta team.

I think Cousins played well, but at the end of the day neither QB is going to be successful playing behind that line.

That hire would be wrong on so many levels. Snyder isn't that stupid.

If it's the truth why does he deny it when asked about it directly?

I think it's bad for someone like Cousins getting a fair shake, but it's going to make every other offensive player on the roster better.
